Ever trip going down the stairs to your basement? Here’s a safety tip from New American Homes, award-winning builder of Newport Cove, a planned waterfront community on the Chain O’ Lakes:

 In dark stairwells, vary the color of the stair treads. Shown here is the stairwell to the lower level in the LIFEhouse, a concept house featuring universal design and opening soon at Newport Cove. Note how the stair carpet color changes. Note the rope lighting routed into the stairrail. These are two inexpensive ideas to add a smart (and interesting) touch of safety to your home.
